Sustainable Buildings: Smart buildings for sustaining people

Sustainable Buildings, a brand new startup and spinoff of the University of Groningen, has already passed a few great milestones, like winning the Green Mind Award twice, the Startup Fast Track and the Pioneers Festival Community Award. Founded by Faris Nizamic and Tuan Anh Nguyen, the startup is now moving forward, after a very successful crowdfunding campaign last summer. Faris Nizamic and Tuan Anh Nguyen, who were PhD researchers of the University of Groningen, got the idea for their software system by looking at the energy usage of their own university office building; the lights that are left on when nobody’s around, or computers that stay on during the weekend, etc.
